    I’m super excited to share a fun Fall portrait session with you guys!  My friend Emily has been doing a lot of promotional work and modeling, so I love asking her to try new, fun photo shoots.  She’s always willing :)  This Fall, we wanted to take advantage of the amazing colors in Downtown Richmond, so we chose to go to The Carillon (Dogwood Dell) to see if we could capture the color!  We went out around golden hour, when…

  • Katelyn + Travis | Pollack Vineyard Engagement

    A Fall Colors Engagement Session At Pollack Vineyard in Greenwood, VA Katelyn and I have known each other since high school when we used to run sprints on the track team together.  I love reconnecting with friends I haven’t seen in a while, especially when it is for their engagement session!  Katelyn and I used to talk about the guys we had crushes on back in high school (all of those fun times!), so reconnecting with her now and hearing…
